"Computer technology has been available to a few artists for less than two decades. At the same time that computers are becoming household utensils, a mixture of high expectation and stubborn opposition surrounds the tentative use of these instruments for art. About the computer’s applicability in art there will be much more to say throughout the book. The purpose of this book, then, is to define, as much as I understand them, the principles of harmony as they apply to graphic...

This book sheds light on the inception and construction of one of the world’s notable landmarks - The Empire State Building. The book can undoubtedly be considered the most comprehensive account of the structure. Moreover, it is far more than a work in architectural history; Tauranac tells a larger story of the politics of urban development from the 19th century through the 1990s.
Topics: Empire, State, Building, John, Tauranac, New York, Manhattan, Landmark, Architecture, Skyscraper
